LEGO Love Week 16: Color Challenge

Generally speaking, Elliott prefers purchased kits when building LEGO.  It's not that he doesn't like to build on his own, but he's our logical, systematic kid, and he enjoys following the instructions and displaying his hard work.  Giving him a LEGO Challenge stretches him and forces him to think outside of the box, but sometimes he will even ask for a challenge, and that's a good thing!

This was a Colour Challenge from The Canadian Homeschooler.  He decided to use the first suggestion and create something with his favorite color. 

This started out as a Red Rocket, but then he wanted to add wheels so it could drive around on the moon, so it turned into the The Red Moon Rover!  

 



He stepped out of his comfort zone, and he had fun!
